Elders Gathering for the Earth

An interactive workshop introducing

The Conscious Elders Network


The Work That Reconnects

with Molly Brown & Constance Washburn

Saturday, Dec 5  - 10 am to 4 pm

St. Columba Retreat House, Inverness, CA 94937

StColumbaRetreatHseInverness.jpgCome join other elders to deepen our connections to the earth and one another while we discover how we can be of greater service to life in our elder years. We will learn about the Conscious Elders Network and experience some of the interactive practices of the Work That Reconnects. At the end of the Workshop we will form into local elder circles to support each other in deepening our consciousness and our commitment to action for the earth.  

StColumbaRetreatHseInvernessArea.jpgDrawing from deep ecology, systems theory and spiritual traditions, the Work That Reconnects builds motivation, creativity, courage and solidarity for the transition to a sustainable human culture. First emerging in 1978, this pioneering work has its roots in the teachings and experiential methods of Joanna Macy.

The Conscious Elders Network is a budding movement of vital elders, dedicated to growing in consciousness while actively addressing the demanding challenges facing our world. We bring our multiple talents and resources, offering these in service to the goal of preserving and protecting life for all generations to come.
